GLProUK’s Jay Ludgrove (The Jaily Show) and Tony Gordon (How To Write A Tune, Bones Knows) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Jay’s choice Falling Down.
Falling Down is a 1993 drama/action film from director Joel Schumacher starring Michael Douglas, in probably a career best as William “D-Fens” Foster. An angry, unemployed, volatile man on a mission to “go home” as he makes a journey across LA leaving a trail of violence while cop-on-his-last-day-on-the-job Martin Prendergast (Robert Duvall) is trying to stop him.
Released in 1993 it was misunderstood – read racist as D-FENs targets are African-American, Latino and Korean but watched through 2021 eyes has a lot to say about the MAGA white angry male Trump supporter – blaming problems on immigrants and refuses to see himself as the problem.
Falling Down scores highly across all Flixwatcher scoring categories – a fair few years might have passed since Flixwatcher and guests watched this at a far too young age (why were we allowed to watch these films as children?!!?) to give Falling Down an overall score of 4.41. Highly recommended.
